6:16pm
on the left to what we've seen so far. here you go from cities from the north bay, sonoma, napa, sfo, redwood city, oakland, the driest start to any year on record. this is for january into early february rainfall. now what's a blessing is the fact that december was the tenth wettest december on record. these numbers, not so good for rainfall. when you compare that early lead-in that we had with the rainfall to start the season, the bay area is looking okay. a lot better than last year where we're seeing about 30% of average rainfall. a lot of the gains we made in december starting to slip away. the snow pack looks healthy. a big difference from last year when it was 29 to 36% of average. so still looking okay. 70% to 80% of average. when you see the seven-day forecast and really the 14-day forecast which looks very dry. you're going to see the numbers continue to drop off. the satellite view has a few high clouds going by with high pressure to the west. we're still kind of seeing
6:17pm
northerly flow down. setting up for some chilly nights. here is the blocking pat person will cause this rainfall and snowfall problems. the polar jet. the main driver for the snow systems way off to the north. sometimes it is a tropical jet that can bent up. that can bring us rain but both being split around this region of high pressure which isn't going anywhere. at least for the next five to seven days. hour by hour, things are staying dry. a few high clouds. a slight offshore breeze will keep the winds off the coasts so the temperature will be chilly. it will be cold for the morning. the afternoon, things turn around pretty nicely. mostly mid to upper 30s. if you have some wind around the hill tops, you may stay in the 40s. some places in the higher elevations, not as cold as we saw this morning. tomorrow near 60 in san jose. not much change as we get the workweek started into the tri-valley. maybe some mid 60s. for san francisco, getting
6:18pm
closer to 60 degrees. around berkeley, richmond, 58, san francisco. low 60s in santa rosa. once we pass monday and tuesday, high pressure will strengthen. that warming will be felt by us down here at sea level. we'll see upper 60s, close to 70 in the warmest spots. i think friday looks to be the warmest day. by next weekend, the high pressure will give up a little ground but not enough to give us rain. student. next sunday we'll see clouds and cooling. for now, the showers will stay off to the north. then the dry pattern continues. >> a very interesting graphic you picked up. how dry it's been. coming up, joe montana is returning to his old stomping grounds this week. instead of football, a little fashion.
